Two-Way Radio Systems for Construction
Effective two-way radio communications are a safety-critical requirement in the construction industry. Instant communications are essential for maintaining a safe working environment, as well as improving operational productivity.
Working with market-leading manufacturers and with unrivalled experience in the construction sector, at 2CL Communications we understand the two-way radio solutions required and can tailor a solution for any project of any size. We offer free advice and will supply a robust, reliable two-way radio system tailored to your construction business requirements, along with a wide range of high-quality accessories.
Digital Two-Way Construction Radios
Since the introduction of digital two-way radio technology, there has been a vast improvement in audio clarity in noisy environments, ensuring that radio messages are being communicated and understood. The introduction of technologies like Intelligent Audio, which automatically adjusts volume depending on the environment you are in, has improved system reliability and performance.
Long Battery Life is Ideal for Site Radios
An added benefit of digital radio is the improvement in battery life. With a wide range of battery sizes and capacities and the implementation of Lithium Ion technology, some radio models can experience up to 30 hours of battery life from a single charge (Subject to usage).
Lone Worker and Man Down Monitoring
Whether it’s a lone plant engineer, or an electrician working on key equipment, the requirement for an automated monitoring function can be met using digital radio systems.
This gives the user the ability to send off emergency alarms if they fail to respond within a pre-determined time frame. Lone Worker Emergency can monitor employee activity from a centralised control room, or from a supervisor’s display radio.
With the ever-increasing importance of employee safety, two-way radio systems can provide an effective means of Lone Worker and Man Down monitoring. Combined with GPS positioning, digital radio systems can aid emergency teams in their response, saving vital minutes to ensure that your employees stay safe at work.
Construction Radio Solutions in London & Hampshire
During a recent large-scale construction project Bouygues, a long-term customer of 2CL Communications, utilised the simple operation of the Motorola DP1400 Digital Radios and also chose to operate using VOX (Voice Operated Transmit) for hands-free use during slinging operations. This provides an effective means of automatic communication while leaving the users’ hands free to signal cranes for lifting evolutions.
With the advance to digital radios, this particular customer immediately noticed a reduction in interference and clearer audio in loud environments. 2CL have also configured an emergency button, to enhance the safety of their operations. If a user spots an unsafe operation they can activate their emergency button, ceasing all operations until they can be sure everyone and everything is working safely.
Long-Term Hire Options
Due to the nature of the construction industry and the short timescale for development projects, 2CL offer an option to flexibly hire radios for the duration of the construction. The option to hire radios on a project-by-project basis keeps customers returning to 2CL, and with so much emphasis on employee safety, radios are often one of the first considerations for construction projects.
